Asparagus with Sesame and Peanut Sauce

I just wanted to share this easy and delicious way of cooking asparagus. We had it tonight with roast chicken and mashed potato. Asparagus is a nutritional powerhouse being a good source of Iron, Magnesium and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Selenium.

  • one bunch of asparagus
  • 1/2 a chopped tomato or 4 small cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon of Thai Peanut Sauce
  • olive oil
  • teaspoon of sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger/garlic paste

  1. heat the oil then add the ginger/garlic paste
  2. add the tomato and sesame seeds saute for a minute
  3. then add the asparagus and peanut sauce saute for 5 minutes.

What's your favorite way of cooking asparagus?
